At least nine people are dead and about 25 others are missing after a fire broke out Friday in Oakland, California at a dance party.
According to the East Bay Times, fire tore through a two-story building that hosted musician Golden Donna’s 100% Silk West Coast tour. Most victims were found on the second floor.
“We still have to do a more thorough search of the building and we don’t know the potential number of other victims,” Deloach-Reed said.
The cause of the fire remains unknown, but the investigation into the incident remains ongoing.
No firefighters were reported injured while battling the blaze.
Relatives of the victims were on social media Saturday looking for confirmation their loved ones were safe. Some are posting and getting information from party’s Facebook event page.
Some have posted pictures and messages on Facebook of people they believe are missing, while others have posted that they had escaped safely.
